To The Lighthouse.

“So fine was the morning except for a streak of wind here and there that the sea and sky looked all one fabric, as if sails were stuck high up in the sky, or the clouds had dropped down into the sea.”
Virginia Woolf, To The Lighthouse.

I’ve spent the past few months quietly working away on compiling a set of 15 images for a panel I’m submitting to the IPF (Irish Photographic Federation) in September.

I’ve swung from feelings of confidence to doubt on an almost hourly basis but I hope at the end of all this to have a collection of images I’m immensely proud of.

This photograph of a lighthouse will not be part of the panel, or maybe it will…..ahhhhhh!

Inspired by a recent visit to the most haunted house in Ireland; Loftus Hall, I created this image of Lady Anne; the ghostly resident of the tapestry room.

Along with an incredibly entertaining and spooky tour of the house visitors can also admire the amazing work of locally based photographer, Steve Meyler.

His 66 framed monochrome photographs of the house (shot in a style based on his experience as an architectural and crime scene photographer) can be found here or on his website www.stevemeyler.com.

Loftus Hall, Hook Head, New Ross, Co. Wexford is well worth a visit, especially if you’re trying to entertain older children and teenagers on a rainy holiday. It is recommended though that you book in advance as the tours are very popular.
